Researchers make case for “Airplane Headache”

Reuters reports that according to a 75-patient study published online in the journal Cephalalgia, Italian researchers make the case that “airplane headache,” a specific short-lived, migraine-like head pain experienced while an airplane is landing, may indeed be a new headache subtype.

Unlike migraine sufferers, however, patients with airline headache report neither nausea nor light or noise sensitivity.

An accompanying editorial calls for further study into the subject.
